Summer Comprehensive Grant

The Summer Comprehensive Grant supports a broad array of Arts and Letters research and creative projects. Students may independently design their projects, or propose a project related to some aspect of the research of a supervising faculty member. In either case, a regular faculty member (T&R or SPF) must endorse the proposal and supervise the project. 


Comprehensive Summer Grants provide support for living expenses, travel, or materials for students with majors or minors in the College of Arts and Letters. Funding for the purchase of computers, cameras, and other electronic equipment will not be provided. Rental costs will be considered.

Sophomores, juniors, and seniors with majors in the College of Arts and Letters are eligible for Summer Comprehensive Grants. Students with minors in Arts and Letters disciplines may also apply if the faculty member supervising their project is in the College of Arts & Letters. 

Max Award: $4,500

Please note:

  • Proposals involving travel to countries for which a State Department travel warning has been issued will not be considered unless the student is traveling with a University of Notre Dame faculty member. 
  • Applicants must inform Therese Blacketor, Student Program Coordinator for the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts (ISLA), if they have also applied for Kellogg or Kroc summer grants.
